Keep Your Swimsuits Looking New All Year October 27 2016
Fall is here and unless you have an exotic beach vacation planned, you’ll be packing away your swimsuits. It’s important to take care of your swimwear to make sure it lasts longer than just one season – whether you’ve spend $30 or $300 on it.
Keep your swimsuits looking their very best using our bikini expert tips to caring for your swimwear.
WASH AFTER EACH WEAR
Chlorine, sunscreen, salt, and even your own body’s natural oils can stain swim fabrics overtime. Extend the life of your swimsuits by washing your suit after each wear.
Hand washing your swimwear takes a little longer than tossing it into the washing machine, but its definitely worth the time. Simply combine cold water and a small capful of gentle laundry detergent, then soak your swimsuit for 5-10 minutes. Then rinse and lay flat to dry. Traveling? Pack a mini travel-sized bottle for detergent, and hand wash in the sink.
BE GENTLE ON FABRIC
Maintain the elasticity of your bikini separates by being gentle on its fabric. Easily avoid rubbing fabric against rough surfaces at the pool or beach by using a towel when witting. Also, there’s no need to wring out your bikini harshly for drying. Need your bikini dried quickly? Wrap it in a towel, squeezing lightly, then air dry.
AND ALWAYS AIR DRY!
Avoid tossing your suit in the dryer – always air dry your swimwear! Too much heat causes fading and damage to the fabric. Let swimsuits dry using air only to keep them looking as vibrant as the day you bought it.
